Completes Construction of $1 Million Clean Room Facility
a leading global sensor supplier and one of wny's largest manufacturers invests in state-of-the-art pressure assembly
December, 2019, DEPEW, NY – PCB
Piezotronics, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MTS Systems Corporation
(NASDAQ: MTSC), announced the completion of new environmentally controlled
clean rooms totaling 4,300 sq. ft. at their Walden Avenue headquarters. Earlier
this year, the sensor manufacturer began assembly of all pressure and force products
in this new state-of-the-art facility.

room, which meets or exceeds ISO Class 7 cleanliness standard (less than 10,000
particles per cubic foot). This room is also humidity controlled within a tight
specification. Particle counts are further reduced down to ISO Class 3-4 levels
(less than 10 particles / cubic foot) due to usage of laminar flow benches,
High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtered fume extractors and other state
of the art clean room equipment.
second clean room area (3,100 sq. ft.) is designated for final product assembly
and calibration processes. This space is under even stricter humidity controls
to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage to electrical components.
Laminar flow benches for critical product assembly, and solder stations with
HEPA filtered fume extractors are used throughout this space.
expects that the environmentally controlled clean rooms will further enhance
their pressure and force sensor manufacturing and assembly processes. Higher
efficiencies, increased throughput, and improved quality and delivery are just
some of the expected benefits. PCB Design Engineers are already working on the
next generation of high performance sensors, whose design and manufacturing is
dependent upon a clean room environment.
